A Self Taught Baker With A Great Passion For Baking
wow, i think i'm gonna get a 2 tier cake for myself on my next year's birthday.
've stacked large 2-tier sponges many times, by using wooden skewers (the types used for satay) as dowels. it worked well.
Terri : I've done research, my top tier was too heavy for the bottom, so D thinks inserting the pillars were safer so we sticked to it. Actually I like stacked cake more :)
Terri, wouldn't the satay skewers be too skinny ah?? I'd be so afraid loh! :P :) I like the looks of stacked cakes too...but yes, it's risky to stack a heavy cake on top of another. I've also seen bakers using straws! Nice job anyway! :D
jenny: u hav to use plenty of them--it's like piling. u can also use those disposable wooden chopsticks which will be steadier for sponge cakes, the satay sticks can work well for butter cakes--they are thicker n softer (yet not oo soft) so can be cut easily. just stick one into the cake, measure the height, cut off into many similar lengths n stuff into the cake, about 2" from the outer edges, n push some in the center as well.
